It is not unusual for lots of users to use weak passwords since they're much easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which are not updated for a long time. In either of these cases, it won't be very difficult for a hacker to take over the website and following that to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted within the same account. In order to avoid such a scenario, we've added an efficient security option known as JailHost. It limits the access which a script has exclusively to its own folder, so if one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but will not be able to access any other content inside your account, thus the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, employing JailHost will not replace the safety measures you must always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will help you to restrict any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Web Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the shared web hosting plans that we offer and you could enable it with just a mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels where add-on domains keep their content in the main domain folder, every single domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its own folder, thus using JailHost will make a significant difference. You will be able to select which websites will use this feature and will be locked based on your content because you may have some website where you would like to allow users or administrators to be able to access other folders in your website hosting account. Nonetheless, this option will add a further level of security to your sites along with the firewalls which we use and even if any of your websites is hacked, you could recover it quick and easy using any of the several daily backup copies of your entire account that we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost is available with all of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions, so if you host several Internet sites, you can easily separate them from each other and keep them safe. This feature should be activated for each Internet site and is not active by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts that need access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a few clicks in the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place several sites under the main domain folder. Instead, each domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it easier to control and shield all of your websites. In case that a website inside your account gets hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we can also recover the affected site before you know it because we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
